Thanks, and next stop is tyre change. And Endurance are the OEM suppliers of many reputed companies. Atfirst when the shopkeeper told me endurance shockers, I thought they were local, but came back home and researched on them and since they were cheaper than gabriel, bought them without any second thoughts.

I'll stick to stock rim and spokes though.

But I have found Sahil to be cheaper than Jayna ??

The end of the muffler in the final pic does look quite wide, the 100 had a slimmer end-pipe.
This is what the sticker says..

Now time for some tyre change, the present rubbers are all worn out.

Please suggest tyres for the front and rear. Usage will be city riding, no off-roading, and since delhi monsoon is here, should handle well on wet roads.

- Nylogrip Moto - D
- RIB
- Nylogrip FV
- Nylogrip Zapper - Y
- Nylogrip Zapper FS
- Zapper F
- Zapper C
- Zapper N
- Zapper Q
- Zapper FG
- Zapper D

Go for Zapper Q (good on wet and dry surface), Zapper C are good on dry and bad on wet. Or you can go for Michelins but they would be expensive.

You mean the one in the image

And the Nylogrip Zapper FS or Zapper F should be good for the front.

Yes.. Zapper FS for the front. Zapper Q is hard to find at times, when i had to change the tyre on my bike, this wasnt available and i had to settle for Zapper C.

I will prefer the 2-grooved Zapper F for the front than the usually found oem Zapper FS.
Unless it is of a harder compound.

Got a quote of 1350/- for the Zapper Q 100/90.

However I have one concern, the rear tyre right now is 3.00-18, the Zapper Q 100/90 is more wide and bigger than the 3.00-18, will it hamper the bikes performance and mileage ?

I don't want to sacrifice a smooth ride for bigger tyres.

My sincere suggestion would be for front go for zapper fs 2.75 x 18

For rear go for Moto D with the new thread pattern, visit RX with pics thread for more info ( the second pic of my bike in that thread is with moto d)

100/90 is an overkill for the swing arm. mind you these are only my views.

The Moto D looks like it'll perform better on off-road conditions. My main usage will be within the city.

The Zapper C is available in 3.00-18 and is similar to the Zapper Q. Should I go for the Zapper C ?

Moto D is a dual purpose tyre i.e can be used both for offroading and on road, but the tyre wears out fast. So think before going for it.

Zapper C is good tyre and i am using it for past 1.5 yrs, except it being a lil tricky on wet surface. If you dont hard brake on wet surfaces its not bad at all. On dry its perfectly good as Zapper Q.

Usually off road tyres give you a harsh ride, but moto d gives you a smooth ride these are dual purpose tyres.

if you are ready to spend a little more go for michelin m45 2.75 x 18 at front and 3.00x18 for rear. here in bangalore it costs 1400/- per tyre pm iraghva (ishan) for delhi prices.
